At the crossroads of traditional jazz guitar, funk, and experimental improvising music stands a rising star shining brighter every day. Alex Nauman. Once this young guitarist, composer, arranger, songwriter, and educator starts putting those talents to work everyone begins to take notice.
People have been taking notice for quite some time now. Alex has been been a regular player throughout the Rocky Mountain Gig circuit. He's been an integral member of a long list of eclectic groups even before he could drive himself to gigs. Playing everything from straight-ahead Jazz, Bop, Funk, R&B, Soul, Hip-Hop, Big-Band Swing, Acoustic Bluegrass, and even a little country, its easy to see why Alex is considered one of the most talented & versatile Musicians around.
Alex is one of the best emerging young jazz guitarists I've
heard in a long time. He has one foot firmly planted in the
styles of past masters like Wes Montgomery and Joe Pass, and
the other foot is stepping out toward new, exciting ground.
He plays with the passion of someone truly devoted to his
music, and that passion is contageous. Keep an eye on this
guy - he's on fire!
